Tips to Prepare For a Blizzard

Share This Post

That bright white fluff on the ground sure won’t be melting any time soon, and if you’ve experienced spring in Colorado, you know the worst of the season’s snowfall is yet to come. Not to worry, though, we’ve got your back with these foolproof tips on blizzard preparation:

Safely store outdoor items.
Basketball hoops, trampolines and hanging plants can get really destructive really fast when high blizzard winds kick up. It’s best to keep them in a shed or storage unit until the warm weather comes back around so they don’t crash through a window (or get ruined).

Stock up on non-perishables.
Even if you may not be technically snowbound, who wants to drive to the grocery store in 10 feet of snow? Be sure your kitchen is full of canned soup, frozen meals and basically anything you would find in a college dorm room.

Clean out your gutters.
If rain gutters aren’t completely cleared out, they can turn into ice dams just waiting to flood when you least expect it. Save yourself the headache and clean them out before the snow hits.

Be ready to conquer a power outage.
No one wants to have to pull a navigate-by-cell-phone-light shtick if the power goes out. Check your supply of flashlights, batteries and even those glow sticks from the Lady Gaga concert no one knows you went to. Avoid lighting candles for risk of causing a fire.
